Same Ice Cream Cone... One Year Later

Shawn and I wandered around a fair far up in Northeastern Vermont that we've frequented over the years in search of my favorite maple product in the entire world.  A Maple Creamee.  Not just any maple creamee, but a real, made around the corner maple syrup, Vermont maple creamee.  Its literally the creamiest and most amazing thing I've ever tasted and its especially perfect to get whilst wandering around a county fair.  

Last year was the first time I discovered this amazing delightful treat.  I was so enthusiastic about my discovery that I commemorated the moment with a photo.  


Then this year, when we ended up at the fair spontaneously, I insisted on searching out the Maple vendors and their wares.  After waddling around the entire fair and reaching their booth in the far corner I found what I was looking for, a maple creamee of course.  Before I devoured the entire thing I remembered the photo from last year and asked Shawn to snap another one, for posterity's sake.  


Its amazing the difference a year can make!  Same fair.  Same Maple Creamee, but I am a little different.   I'm also wondering why the heck I was ever self conscious in  those shorts I wore last summer...

I love photos like this - and that ice cream cone sounds absolutely divine.

Just think - next year you'll be eating a Maple Creamee while holding a baby! :)

It is amazing what can happen in a year doesn't it? I remember looking back at pictures of myself prior to getting pregnant and thinking "Why did I think I was fat?!"

Ha! That is definitely a change. You still look great, though!

Next year you'll have to get a pic with you and your almost 1-year old sharing that creamee!

Does anyone outside of Vermont know what a creamee is? Just wondering. P.S. No fair talking about maple creamees when I'm stuck in Ohio. ;)

They have great maple creamees at Addison County Field Days too. So if you want to hit more VT fair for great local maple add it to the list.

I'm guessing you were at the Barton Fair.

I grew up going to the Caledonia County Fair. I don't think they had maple creamees back then - but they very well may these days.

I definitely plan on trying to remember to get a photo next year with an almost 1 year old (crazy!)

And I had no idea what a creamee was until I moved to VT either... Caledonia County Fair DOES have maple creamees, too, but they aren't as good as Barton's for some reason.

...what a silly thing to say, as if there is such a thing as a bad creamee

You'll need to get a photo next year! That will be such a fun tradition! You look great in both photos.
